The core purpose of the Fordham Law Alumni Association (FLAA) is to keep our alumni community vibrant and strong. The FLAA works to develop and cultivate social and professional interaction among alumni of the Law School’s J.D., LL.M., M.S.L., and S.J.D. programs, administration, faculty, and current students.
The FLAA continues to strengthen and grow our affinity groups and international chapters, which we hope will prove useful particularly to our LL.M. community. The FLAA recently launched the following affinity groups: Alumni Attorneys of Color; Business and Financial Law: Intellectual Property; International Law; and Public Interest, Service and Government.
Fordham Law alumni can be found in 49 U.S. states and 80 countries. The FLAA has established chapters spread across four continents and 14 countries, including four newly established chapters in the Middle East.
I encourage you to find meaningful ways to engage with the Fordham alumni community. From joining an affinity group, to attending an FLAA event, to connecting with other Fordham alumni on the FLAA’s LinkedIn page, the ways to get involved are endless.
I ask that you consider becoming a member of the FLAA and help us grow our community globally. Membership in the FLAA is free for our most recent graduates, $50 for graduates 4–9 years out, and $100 for alumni who obtained a Fordham degree 10+ years ago. Visit the FLAA webpage for more information on becoming a member and upcoming events.
Our vibrant alumni community is only as strong as we make it, so please take the time to get involved in the Fordham network.
